Painting & Drywall is our business – small, large, interior, exterior, industrial, and commercial, we do it all.
In 1970 we were known as Ware Painting Contractors. Primarily offering painting and paintwork, however, over 50 years later things have changed a little.


The earlier years


THE 1970s

WARE PAINT & DRYWALL INC. was founded by Wayne Spradley. Wayne started his own paint business in 1970 which was called Ware Painting Contractors. The name Ware comes from Ware County, in which the company resides. Wayne started out doing primarily paintwork, but due to the increase in construction in the area; Wayne extended his line of work to include drywall installation and finishing.

THE 1980s

During the early 1980s, Wayne added metal stud framing, acoustical ceilings, and EIFS (Exterior Insulation & Finish System) to the company’s scope of work. In 1997, Wayne changed the name of the company to WARE PAINT & DRYWALL INC.


Today, due to Wayne’s effort to build a reputable company, much of our work is repeat business. A great deal of our current work is done with general contractors that Wayne has been working with for over twenty years.

The company bids a work package that includes painting & caulking, drywall, metal stud framing, suspended acoustical ceilings, and EIFS at a lump sum price. Most general contractors like the package deal that Wayne has put together due to the project management savings from not having to deal with several independent companies.

WARE PAINT & DRYWALL INC. only does commercial and light industrial projects. Some of the commercial projects that the company specializes in schools, hospitals, nursing homes, county/city jails, federal prisons, build-outs, renovations/remodels, and courthouses, but has done many other types of commercial projects as well. WARE PAINT & DRYWALL INC. has assisted Architects, Contractors, and Owners with things such as budgeting, design/build, specifications, QC, and value engineering.
